Alshon Jeffery had his best game of the season on Sunday, netting 160 receiving yards and eight catches in the Philadelphia Eagles 30-23 win over the Rams in Los Angeles. The 28-year-old wide receiver was so pumped after the season-saving win; he accidentally took a fall on his way to Philly’s locker room.

Thankfully, Jeffery immediately got up and appeared to be OK after the tumble.
Jeffery’s big performance against the juggernaut Rams helped keep the Eagles playoff hopes alive. After an up-and-down season, the defending Super Bowl Champions have won three of their last four games and are 7-7 on the season. Even with Carson Wentz going down, quarterback Nick Foles stepped it up, teaming up with Jeffery to propel Philadelphia to a much-needed win.
The Eagles are now just half a game back of the final playoff spot in the NFC. They’re far from a sure thing to make it out of the conference, but with more clutch performances like Jeffery’s on Sunday, they’ve got a legitimate shot to do so.
